    I am inhuman

    I can't help but wonder why I'm human. Why am I in a physical form? What was I created for? Why am I not a spirit floating through time and space? What happens when I die? Is life on Earth just a game? I feel like I lost all connection to humanity. I don't understand the point of existing and...

    Existing is uncomfortable

    Existing feels really uncomfortable for me. I have no idea how to properly explain it because I barely understand it but I just feel like something is wrong, something is missing, something is out of place. I'm a deep thinker, it's just who I am, so often my thoughts will drift to how do I...

    Done with everything

    I feel so lonely/sad/pissed off/frustrated/upset/numb/overwhelmed. I just want to give up. I want to stop existing for a while. I want to hide under my duvet and be left the f**k alone for a while. I feel so isolated and frustrated. I feel like I just go round in circles. I can't even cry.

    Delusions Theory

    At some point in the past our minds dissociated because they made the decision that we were to blame for the pain they felt inside. Unlike us the mind is unable to see outside into the world to understand the cause of the pain the trauma caused, and so only has us to blame, and we become the...

    why should I bother?

    What is the point of me having a peaceful stressful day when someone can come along and keep me exchanging messages online for a fucking parking enquiry for a measly six quid half the night and get me angry and riled and stressed. I mean why do I need the bloody hassle,I can't take it,the...

    A message of support?

    I'm not a 'carer' in the sense that I have some officially recognised role that attracts 'benefits'. I suspect there may be many people reading/lurking on this area of the forum who are much like me...people trying to love, live with and care for people with MH problems without any outside...

    I don't want to feel this way anymore.

    I have suffered with depression for the past 20 years. It has incapacitated me so much. I have always felt like I am not good enough and inferior and have many a time wished I wasn't here. I have thought about suicide many times over the years but the thought of how it would effect my two girls...

    Can Voices Make People Kill --

    I don't believe that the “Voices” can independently make some completely normal person go on such a dramatic change and turn them into Cold-Blooded Killers however Chronic the symptom maybe. All these Mentally Ill that have Killed in the past and have “Blamed” the “Voices” for making them Kill...
